The Society has a proud history and for many years held both a Winter Exhibition and Summer Show (now the annual Whangarei A&P Show held on the first Saturday each December) – both events being major icons in the District.


Whangarei A&P Show

Brighter and better each year, the Whangarei A&P Show is a highly successful, well established community event that involves a myriad of organisations, trade companies, farmers and equestrian groups.
